By providing a safe, family-friendly working environment, Kenana Knitters empowers women, offering them a chance to work and take charge of their lives, with dignity. All items are organic and hand-knitted. Products include wool and cotton plush toys, Home Decor including blankets, throws, pillows and rugs, clothing & accessories.
